A powerful part if attentively to consider the physical map, Central Valley which treats a part of an earth's plate of the North American platform borrow. Height above sea level fluctuates within 200-400 meters.

At the time of the Middle Ages the European seafarers and conquerors discovered for themselves Novaya Zemlya and therefore during settling of America they were at war with indigenous people, gradually pushing aside it. The most part of the rebellious local people was exterminated by immigrants, and survivors moved to sites of the territory of little use for adequate accommodation.

The physical map indicates the area height, a territory landscape. On it it is approximately specified how many meters the concrete area above sea level has. With blue color sea depth, and the nasyshchenny color is marked, the it is deeper. Yellow and orange colors mean height over a zero mark (it and is sea level).
